MID-EN­GINE ITAL­IAN PER­FOR­MANCE, WITH HALF THE CYLIN­DERS

Ignition - - Table 0f - PHO­TO­GRAPH BY MICHAEL BET­TEN­COURT

The gor­geous Alfa Romeo 4C Spi­der is a bite­size help­ing of open-air Ital­ian per­for­mance, its tiny 1.8-litre four-cylin­der en­gine size sound­ing down­right com­muter-like, and about half the size (in dis­place­ment and cylin­der count) as most other mid-en­gine Ital­ian sports cars. But its 237 hp and sub-2,500 pound (1,134 kg) curb weight re­sult in a more im­pres­sive num­ber: 4.1 sec­onds, its zero to 96 km/h sprint time.
